Would raising the legal dropout age help Wyoming's dropout rates?
Would raising the legal dropout age help Wyoming's dropout rates?

Around the country, every state has its own law regarding the legal age that a student may choose to drop out of school. Fifteen states and the District of Columbia have a legal age of 18; eight states have a legal age of 17. Wyoming is one of 27 states where the legal age to drop out is 16.

This week's Bank of Sheridan / sheridanmedia.com poll question is: "Should Wyoming law be changed so that students are required to stay in school until age 18 or until they get a High School diploma?"
